What Women Should Consider When Getting Advice
It’s quite true that women, just like men, need help in finding their ways and handling things from time to time. Since women are widely known to be the more sentimental and emotional between the two sexes, they tend to be more inclined to seeking advice as well as tips in many things, including relationships, social life, jobs, health, and others. Sadly though, not all tips and advice a woman can get from everyone is honest, pure, and without malice. You never can be too sure that everyone you seek advice from will have good intentions because there always will be one who has ill motives towards you.
So if you are someone who is in need of advice in different aspects of your life, you might want to give these three things some consideration first:
1 – First things first, figure out why you’re in need of advice in the first place.
The key here is to be particularly sure about the reason you cannot deal with the issue on your own decision-making. So whenever you figure that out, that’s the time you make the realization that the only possible means of handling whatever it is that bothers you is by seeking someone else’s advice. One thing you must completely avoid is seeking advice not because you need it but because you just want everyone else to know you have some issues or problems you need to deal with. It’s a common occurrence in social media and you definitely don’t want to be labeled as someone who possesses victim-mentality attitude. The reason why you want to avoid this is because you’re just trying to get sympathy from others and it could lead to some form of attention addiction. Therefore, before seeking advice, make sure you feel that there is value in getting one.
2 – Next thing you need to factor in is the person to whom you plan on getting advice from.
While you probably are more concerned about getting quality advice, you also would want to make sure you’re getting it from a trustworthy individual. Some are more than willing to listen to what you have to say but only a few will give their genuine advice or opinion. Be smart in selecting the people you seek advice because some of them might only be willing to listen so that they can hear what you have to say and then talk about it to other people. Aside from your most trusted friends, you also can get advice from professionals such as therapists, psychologists, and psychics, all of whom are experts in giving advice about life in general.
3 – Finally, you have to learn what makes an advice great.
You do have to understand that not all tips you get from people are true and of great value. Even if you need help from other people to act on something, it still is important that you at least know if acting on it based on the advice will produce something positive.
